You’re All Just Playing Again, Way Down the Line
Regular news tipster AugieD tells us that Crazy Taxi has deployed in New Zealand, meaning the game will almost certainly be out in North America and the Europe later this evening.
A $6.49 NZD price point has been revealed; that likely means those interested domestically will pay about $4.99. The good news is that this game is classified as Universal, so you only have to buy once to play across all iOS devices.
Crazy Taxi should be out about 7PM locally in the UK, and about 11PM Eastern time in the United States. iOS version 4.3 or later is required, and the game is a 125 MB download. The official App Store description is below. We again thank AugieD for tipping us on Twitter.
